Created openldap tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1895288]

Comment 6 RaTasha Tillery-Smith 2020-12-08 15:55:26 UTC

This vulnerability affects the server side only. As a result, OpenLDAP client components, such as the component shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, are not affected by this flaw.
